Role in the project


The project will serve as a comprehensive live demonstrator for the national and international network of aircraft refuelling operators using a 100% electric vehicle in the 40KL Refueller category. In addition, the transferability of the results to other airports will be discussed and promoted. An understanding and solution proposals for the current gaps in regulation as well as in the areas of financing, operation and safety will be developed.
